In order to keep down the cost of medical services, charges are payable at the time services are rendered. We assist our patients with insurance by supplying them with a standardized form stating diagnosis, procedure codes, dates of service and the breakdown of charges.
Upon scheduling all elective surgeries or after emergency surgery, a member of our office staff will discuss the charges for surgery, your insurance coverage, and your proposed method of payment. You are responsible for the unpaid balance resulting from any difference between our fee and your insurance reimbursement.
In some cases of elective, non-cosmetic, major surgery, it may be advantageous to contact your insurance carrier for pre-operative authorization. We will be happy to submit a letter to your insurance carrier with appropriate photographs.
We charge $50 for initial cosmetic consultations (which is NON refundable). Revision surgical consultations are $125, and this fee is not applied to the cost of subsequent revision surgery.
If there is any difficulty with your ability to pay, please discuss this with our office manager and some mutually acceptable arrangement can be made.
As recommended by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, our policy is that fees for all cosmetic surgery be paid prior to surgery. Fees for cosmetic surgery are due in full seven (7) working days before surgery.
